Here at Castanea we think anything in cashmere makes a super special gift any woman won’t forget in a hurry. It really is a gift that keeps giving! The fiesta red coloured sweaters & accessories are the obvious choice for a truly festive & luxurious gift.
However if you want to splurge we recommend the Liza sweater. It is crafted from a super soft mid-weight knit with voluminous waffle puffed upper sleeves that lead into chunky ribbed cuffs, and features a high turtle neck & thick luxurious cardigan stitch body.
We are delighted to see the gorgeous new mum Vogue Williams wearing the Edel cashmere sweater for a recent outing with her new husband Spencer Matthews & new baby Theodore. Vogue is a champion supporter of Irish knitwear. Thanks Vogue.
” SS18 is all about a new spin on age-old crafts. We celebrate the perfectionism and perseverance of LOCAL DESIGNERS AND ENTREPRENEURS who are WEAVING A SPELL. First up, meet PAULA MARRON …
With her label Castanea, Marron has given luxurious cashmere separates a thoroughly modern makeover.
HER BACKGROUND: After studying fashion at NCAD I interned at Ralph Lauren in London. When I came home I worked with the designer Rachel Mackay, who has since passed away, and then at Sphere One with Lucy Downes, where I stayed for ten years.
THE APPEAL OF CASHMERE: I’m very tactile and love working with my hands. Most of my degree collection was knitted, some by hand but mostly by machine. Cashmere is so soft and luxurious; it’s the Rolls Royce of yarn. “
